Resource scheme


​Student Resource Scheme (SRS)

The Student Resource Scheme (SRS) is a user‐charging scheme operated by schools to provide parents/carers with a mechanism to access individual student resources that are not funded by the government.

Government funding for schools does not extend to individual student resources and equipment for their personal use or consumption. Supply of these items, such as textbooks and personal laptops/iPads, is the responsibility of the parent/carer.

The objective of the scheme is to provide parents/carers a convenient and cost‐effective alternative to individual supply of resources for their students. Participation in the SRS is optional, and no obligation is placed on a parent/carer to participate.

Terms and conditions for participating in the scheme are provided on the reverse side of the Student Resource Scheme Participation Agreement Form. Information is also provided on the Textbook and Resource Allowance (TRA) where applicable.

This Participation Agreement Form applies for the duration of a student’s enrolment at the school, however parents/carers who are participating in the scheme can choose to opt out from the SRS in future years by completing a new Participation Agreement Form. Any new Participation Agreement Form submitted annually and received by the school will supersede the previous form lodged.

Parents/carers pay the annual participation fee in accordance with the selected payment arrangement. If a student joins the school mid‐year, a pro‐rata participation fee may apply.

Parents/carers not participating in the scheme must provide their student with all items that would otherwise be provided by the scheme as detailed in the information provided by the school. Parents/carers can choose to join the SRS in future years by completing a new Participation Agreement Form.

To assist schools in managing and administering the scheme, parents/carers are requested to complete the Participation section of the form and return it to the school.

If parents/carers have not completed and returned the form before the due date indicated by the school in the SRS Annual Parent/Carer Information documents, the school will take the view that the parent/carer does not wish to participate.

Participating in the SRS

Participation in the SRS requires either making a full payment at the time of lodging of the Participation Agreement Form, or a payment plan being entered into with regular payments to finalise the plan to be paid by the end of the first semester of the school year. All payment plans require $75 per student to activate them.
